4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Presentation: 11.2 oz. brown bottle served in a stemless, oversized wine glass.
Appearance: Thin 1/2 finger head that fizzles out into a thin ring that stays ítill the end, and it leaves some great lacing. Itís a cloudy, bright yellow color.
Smell: It has a simple, very sweet and pleasant smell. A mix of malt with red and green apples.
Taste: The sweet and sour taste is great and something thatís not found in any other brew. The sour of the green apples dominate, but itís balanced nicely by a red apple and malt sweetness in the background.
Mouthfeel: Creamy and medium bodied with very little carbonation. Itís light and very easy to drink.
Overall: Despite the sweetness on the nose and palate, everything feels nicely balanced, surprisingly. This beer is not cloying at all and doesnít have that candy flavor that turns away a lot of people from these types of fruit beers. Itís great, very simple and refreshing. Proof that a good beer is not just about having a thousand flavors crammed into a bottle.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle. Poured hazy yellow color with an average to large frothy white head that was mostly lasting with good lacing. Medium to heavy yeast, green apple aroma. Medium body with soft carbonation and sticky texture. Medium sweet green apple flavor with a medium sweet finish of moderate duration. Complex strange apple beer.

Floris Apple. Hazy light yellow colour with a little white head. Aroma is a bit chemical. Taste sweet. Not bad, but nothing special.

2.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 7/20
Pours like a cloudy cider.Aroma of crisp fresh apples. Tastes like apple juice mixed with artificial sweetener. Short, sweet, apple-cooler finish. I absolutely find no beer element present.

Hazy gold with a fizzy lasting white head. Smells of orchard fresh apples. Nice sweetness. Medium thin body with lively carbonation. Tastes like a cider with a malty base. Sweet and juicy with an apple sour on the finish. Nice.

1.3 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 6/20
Bottle. Hazy medium golden, short-lived head. Intense apple-candy aroma and flavour, like Jolly Rancher candies. Sickeningly sweet.

2.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 5/20
It poured a hazy golden color with small white head. The aroma was of apples when the bottle was opened, a little spiciness and apple juice. The taste was of apple juice with clean finish. Decent.

2.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 7/20
UPDATED: FEB 6, 2013
Cloudy light gold appearance; It has a faint smell of green apple, flower and white wine; small head, which is better than Lindemans Apple; light body and watery; Taste more like apple juice, with white wine taste not apparent, a real minus; Very sweet, no hop bitterness at all and nearly no tartness; It has a funny cholocate taste towards the end!
Comments: I looked forward to taste it, and I was let down, bad. Definitely a few pars below Lindemans Apple. It feels just like drinking apple juice instead of fruit beer, so why bother making it? :(

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
0.33 l bottle shared with Marko. It poured hazy golden body with medium sized head. Apple aroma, some banana yeast, also barley notes which were especially pronounced later on in the flavor as some sharpness to generally soft fruity and chalky tasted sweet brew. Medium in body with longer, sweet and sticky flavor. Wasnít too artificial for my palate, just a little bit and I enjoyed it no more or less than other Belgian fruit beers.

2.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
0.33l from Kuća Piva. Pours a hazy yellow-golden body with almost no head. Apple & malt nose, strange vague notes of chocolate. That continues into the taste, actually, the chocolate-like notes end up merging with the apple notes into something distinctly fake and sweet. Creamy though. Dunno, thereís something fake and repugnant about it. Meh.
Earlier Rating: 7/17/2009 Total Score: 2.7
Bottle that ogivlado found in Slovenia and shared with me (thanks!)
Poured a murky pale yellow body with a small thick white head that took its time to go away. The nose is remarkably fresh, green apple, slightly acidic. I expected more from the taste after that but it turned out to be disappointingly sweet, too sweet, green apple candy. Not too sticky and ok, certainly better than a 2.2 score would indicate, but still a disappointment.
